New York Times ‘Room For Debate’ Features Several Opinion Pieces Examining Population Growth
New York Times: Room for Debate: Is Overpopulation a Legitimate Threat to Humanity and the Planet?
“A recent Retro Report examines how the apocalyptic predictions about overpopulation made by the biologist Paul Ehrlich, in his 1968 book ‘The Population Bomb,’ have not come to pass. Disease-resistant crops, improved health standards, and a broader demographic shift from an agricultural society have kept the problem at bay. But do we still need to worry about overcrowding? Is the threat of overpopulation overblown?” Multiple authors answer these questions and others in several opinion pieces published as part of this New York Times “Room for Debate” (6/8).
